Savarin Canele (サヴァラン・カヌーレ Savaran Kanuule?) is a character that appears in the Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS television series. The elder brother of Biscuit Griffon, he worked for a company in the African Union called the Dort Company. He lived with Biscuit when both were young but parted ways, only reuniting when Tekkadan visited his colony. [1]


Savarin was originally born in the Dort Colonies. While he was studying at business school, his parents were killed in an accident. While his brother Biscuit and sisters Cookie and Cracker were sent to Mars to live with their grandmother, Savarin was taken in by a Dort executive due to his intelligence.

While Biscuit and the others were visiting the Dort Colonies, Savarin realized his younger brother Biscuit was part of Tekkadan who had been the target of misinformation by Gjallarhorn. Believing Atra Mixta, who was with Biscuit when they met up to be Kudelia Aina Bernstein, he contacted Gjallarhorn and had them captured. His intent was to hand over Kudelia to gain favour with Gjallarhorn, so they could continue negotiations which had begun to break down. Though his brother told him that Atra wasn't Kudelia, Savarin refused to believe him, insisting that Atra would have to do as a scapegoat if it meant avoiding a massacre. However, Biscuit and Atra were soon rescued by Tekkadan. Being the first to catch them in the act, Savarin begged his brother to hand over the girl, pleading that it's one life over countless more. In response, Biscuit tearfully refused. Tekkadan soon fled as a pair of Gjallarhorn soldiers started opening fire.

As the armed Dort workers start gathering in protest, Savarin desperately pleads with the company executive to renegotiate to no avail. Soon after, a bomb went off and in the resulting panic, Gjallarhorn opened fire on the protesting workers. He later arrives at the aftermath of the massacre.

Following the massacre of Dort Company workers, as well as his betrayal of Biscuit, the guilt led him to hang himself. At the location of his suicide, he left a message for Biscuit on a device telling him not to repeat his mistake by being overburdened with responsibility.
